The groups meets on the third Thursday of each month from 5-6 p.m. in the Ice House Pub Lounge of the Golden Pond Lodge (50 West Main Street, Hopkinton, MA).

Meetings are free of charge, open to the public and handicapped accessible. Light refreshments will be served.

Newcomers are welcome to join and can leave at any time. The group is open to the Hopkinton community and surrounding towns and designed for individuals who care for someone in the mid-late stages of Alzheimer's and related dementia.
